Had a wonderful meal here at weekend. Lovely ambience, fantastic menu with lots of wonderful seafood. The mussels, crab salad and trio of fish were divine. Waiter service was attentive and we would definitely return.

The high ratings were for the seafood side of the restaurant. We wanted to enjoy the pub side but was too modern for us. We had come to Ireland for true Irish pub, fare and atmosphere.

This is a restaurant that I go to a couple of times a year. Last visit was in October 2016. The restaurant is always busy and booking is essential. We have always opted for fish at this restaurant but they have added a few meat dishes. Everything was first class and up to their usual high standard.

We went to Gallagher's for lunch today. The food was amazing. We shared mussels to start, which were delicious. They were served in a garlic cream sauce and although they were a starter, the portion was huge! We both had the seafood platter for main. It consisted of tempura prawns, calamari, smoked salmon , poached salmon and crabmeat. Each type... More
